ADDISON, IL-This DuPage County suburb, along with nearby Lombard, has seen more than 80,000 sf of industrial space taken in two separate lease deals. Jones Lang LaSalle represented Morton International in negotiations on a 10-year, 52,849-sf lease at 200 S. Mitchell Ct. here as well as Kohler Rental Power, Inc.’s five-year, 30,980-sf deal at 901 Oak Creek Dr. in Lombard.

Chicago-based Morton International, acquired by Philadelphia-based Rohm and Haas in 1999, makes specialty chemicals and salt. Its former corporate headquarters at 100 N. Riverside Plaza is now occupied by Boeing Corp.

“The primary objective for finding space for our client was the location and access to rail cargo service in order for Morton to serve it’s customers with ‘just in time’ delivery,” says Jones Lang LaSalle vice president of industrial services George Maragos.

Kohler, a leading manufacturer of power systems, was looking for space to store and distribute generators.

“The client was looking for a central location that would be the most convenient for serving customers its in the Chicago and suburban market,” Maragos says. “The Lombard location fits that requirement.”
